The reality of last week is starting to kick-in, to say it was busy would be a massive understatement. Only a week after the Met Bar’s floor has been lovingly renovated it was filled to the brim with a melting pot of music fans and fashionistas.
Sunday saw an event hosted by one of London’s most prolific music managers/ agents. Kissy Sell Out, Eddie Temple-Morris and A.Human entertained the Sunday clubbing pack, who were dancing frenetically and kept the bar staff awake til the early hours of Monday morning.
Hotel, Hotel, the Met Bar’s newest monthly club-night was launched on Wednesday to a rapturous welcome from the ever-adoring fashion and music crowd. They were all quaffing complimentary Patron Silver Tequila cocktails created specially for the night.
Jodie Harsh and Skin (from Skunk Anansie) kept everyone dancing while the Met Bar staff continued to produce their world famous cocktails. The date for the next Hotel, Hotel, will be announced shortly, so keep your diary open and your dancing shoes ready!
Music Week magazine celebrated their awards show in the most fitting way – with a party at the Met Bar. On Thursday night the bar was bursting at the seams with music executives and notaries, all desperately clamouring for the packed bar. One of our residents, Ed, kept spinning the hits keeping the bar at capacity all night long.
If you’re single and like to mingle, our new event last Friday would’ve been perfect for you. Launched by long-time member Caroline Butler, “Mingles” is a less intimidating alternative to speed dating. The infamous Jonny Awsum and his assistant Ellie hosted the night, and in Jonny’s typical style the night was filled with controversial games and feel-good music. I’m sure I sensed love in the airâ€¦
After Mingles everyone was dancing as the charismatic drummer from Duran Duran, Roger Taylor took to the decks. His eclectic 80s set filled the brand-new dance floor with hoards of fans and Met Bar revellers alike.
This Wednesday the fabulous Jonny Awsum will be performing his live, interactive TV show at the Met Bar. This month he’s at the movies so if you can scream like you’re in a horror movie or cry like you’re in a rom-com this is the show for you!
